The classic Osprey EXOS and EJA Receives Major Updates

A long standing classic, the Osprey EXOS and EJA (his & hers) series has been a staple of the backpacking world since 2009.

The newly updated series is set to be the backpacker’s dream; ultra-light, well ventilated and more functional than ever before, the EXOS/EJA is the go-to pack for the agile adventurer.

The addition of a women’s ultralight backpack, improved hipbelt technology, and increased durability in high-wear areas all combine to take theE XOS/EJA series from a well loved series, to the next level.

Improved Comfort

An Exoform™ harness and hipbelt allow for improved comfort; a seamless, layered mesh harness cushions the shoulders, while a 15mm adjustable slide sternum strap makes for better stability around the upper torso; while the hip-belt features an ErgoPull™ closure, following the contour of your hips to allow for a more streamlined, and therefore stable carry.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I’m also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them.

So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.
